If you are visiting Venice be sure to include a trip to this Municipal Beach with great parking for an evening sunset. Bring a chair and get ready to relax and savor the end of the day.

Huge, wide beach with life guards. Free parking and plenty of it, though it does get crowded. Very nice spot to enjoy the sand, sun and surf...

Not a big deal for us other than some coughing. Rough water prevented us from swimming and shark tooth hunting. The beach has rough sand with lots of shells and is big enough that it didn't feel busy. Free parking and not a long walk to the beach. Take a walk out on the pier and get a drink and... More

We were looking for "The best sharks tooth beach in Florida." This is not it. Drive straight to Caspersen Beach. We just didn't find anything unique or great about this beach in any way. Too crowded and nothing special.

Lovely clean beach. Great for collecting seashells. Sunsets here are also breath taking. Lifeguards on duty here also.

Nice to visit; close, good, free parking; great facilities; crowded on weekends. Fun to walk, good boat and people watching. The sand is not fine, white, soft - rather coarse and "shelly". Lots of restrooms, foot showers, walkways. Bring what ever you need, no services. Watch little ones in the water closely.

One of the nicer beaches we have visited in Florida. Mostly couples and families. Volleyball nets for the more athletic The snack shop at the Pavilion is a great convenience. Several nights a week there is live music, too

A great beach within walking distance to downtown Venice where you can enjoy all the shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and ice cream shops. The beach itself is big and beautiful, spent a lot of time in the sun on this beach so remember and bring your own umbrella, it can get very hot.
